Norfolk, VA (July 10, 2015) – Recent assessments by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rate NRHA assisted-rental housing properties and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) programs among the nation’s best for fiscal year 2014.

HUD’s Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) scored NRHA assisted-rental apartment properties 92 out of a possible 100 based on physical conditions, financial, management operations and capital fund program execution.

NRHA Chief Executive Officer John Kownack said “Our score is up two points from our last annual assessment. Sustaining this score is no easy task, and is something we take very seriously. Our property management staff has worked diligently to maintain our high score and this recent PHAS rating reflects their hard work.”

For the seventh year in row NRHA achieved high performer status for its HCV program, scoring 143 out of a possible 145 points based on 14 criteria ranging from lease-up rates to housing quality inspections.
